Calling all amphibians...
It's Monday in the garden, and Memorial Day for our friends in the United States, and a reminder to all of us that our fallen soldiers should not be forgotten - they died for the peace we have inherited. Perhaps you would like to link up a poem which could loosely fall under the theme of memories, commemoration, memorial or remembrance. Alternately, this open link allows us to feature a poem that has been forgotten, and buried somewhere in our archives. Why not give it a second chance today? Remember to share the love around, visit the sites of your fellow poets and spread goodwill among all friends and followers of Real Toads.
Thanks as always for hosting this! Here's my Wedded Limerick..
leaving this evening for a week.will try to read as much as possible during the break.if not, when I come back.happy monday and have a good week.
My memorial poem is Australia-based.
As always... and have a great week
As I already posted a memorial day tribute on Saturday my link isn't along those lines.
Thanks for the prompt Kerry.
Have a great week Toads
Nothing on the memorial at hand. So posted are the Limericks submitted earlier to Madeleine's blog!
In honor of Memorial Day, I offer a poem I'd previously written, focusing on the sacrifice of a single man, exemplifying what all war veterans have put on the line for us.
I love the picture you have included, Kerry. I love our service people for their bravery and sacrifice, but I often despise governments for sending them into harm's way when it isn't really necessary to do so.
I posted a Memorial Day poem I wrote three days ago. I am soon on my way to watch my Cub Scout grandson march in a Memorial Day parade & take part in a ceremony after that. I'll be back.
I linked up an older poem that is perfect for Memorial Day. Have a wonderful week everyone!
For lack of being able to remember if I have poem that falls in this category, I'm going to link one that commemorates living life according to one's calling.
Warm smiles to all in the pond today!
I'm linking up for the first time today. Thanks for the prompt.
I did not look back through my work for an appropriate poem, though I have many. I was in a Memorial Day mood, so I wrote a reflection, but it probably belongs on my blog blog, "Susan, continued. . . . at http://susan60.blogspot.com/
And as usual, I have been inspired by many of the poems I read through this site!
Mine is irrelevant to the holiday. You know how I am with rules.
Goodness did I enjoy Hannah's poem.
oh my, i am confused. is it monday? :)
An old, old favourite of mine.
Susan, your link is a dead end again. I will remove it and you can try again :)
Welcome to Sue.
Happy day to all.
I have included a poem that I forgot about but thought I would share it
Noting like that banjo in the hills of Virginia. Jack would have loved it.
The boat floats, the poem.....ehh.
My McAfee simply will not let me visit Shanyn's blog, which I find incredibly frustrating.
Back in Black folks...missed everyone. A little sumpin' but more importantly got to get to reading.
new story :)
hope it's a great week for everyone, i'll be back to review tonight.
Added a piece I wrote for Shawna's Monday Melting that I'm especially proud of. Having fun reading everyone else's work as well!
Better late than...oh never mind, but anyway here goes!
Better late than...oh, what Other Mary said...
But here we are. Yes, both of us, my intrepid photographer and myownself.
